I've always saw Bravely Second as "Bravely Default 2". Looking forward to this, just hope the title doesn't confuse anyone.

Just wait until they decide to release Bravely Second II, then Bravely Third - the fifth game in the series.

I hope we see another game in the Octopath Engine but better, hope they don't give up. And a FF6 remake in the engine.

There were some interesting updates to already known games, but in terms of new announcements nothing really caught my eye.


Amnesia (on 13 December 2019)

Just concretly, can someone reminds me what serious and heavy thing Capcom and SquareEnix have done for the Switch ? Except porting every old RE and FF ?

Bravely 2.... dragon quest 11, best edition, octopath traveler.... come on man. That's pretty awesome. Are you asking more about how many, rather than great game releases? I really dont get your question.

Capcom? Absolutely NOTHING. Crapcom can suck their EA style overpriced trash releases and keep them to themselves. But sqeenix is ok in my view.
